Well, when I bought my little D3000, I discovered the number of actuations of the shutter has about doubled since I purchased it. I guess it’s another reminder of how many photos I actually take. Pity it’s not an accurate estimate of how many good photos I take! 🙁
In a way, it’s kind of a confirmation no matter how many bad pictures I have taken that I now can occasionally a fairly decent shot (about 1% of 1%). I almost always shoot in RAW these days, and I have begun to understand how to get better shots from my little camera.
